Though only a few miles from his mother's well-kept rowhouse near Herring Run Park in Northeast Baltimore, Cory L. Harrison was shot to death on a gritty city street early Saturday that might as well have been worlds away.
Harrison, 27, was shot multiple times and found lying unresponsive in the 2000 block of Robb St. in East Baltimore about 1:30 a.m., police said. On that street yesterday, several people on sidewalks and sitting on steps in front of dilapidated rowhouses said they didn't know Harrison or anything about the shooting.
Court records show that Harrison had convictions for illegally carrying a handgun and drug possession. His mother, Ina Barnes, said a court hearing had been scheduled for him on a probation violation.
